As we are living through a record changing climate and facing its impact, we need to go into an emergency mode and do everything in our power to restore nature.

Climate change will hit the most vulnerable first and hardest.
Keeping this in mind a seed bombing drive was initiated by Alka Saran in the Aravalis in 2017. She being a member of Let's Walk Gurgaon persuaded the walkers to disperse seed bombs in the hiking trails. This led to the formation of Let's Plant Gurugram in 2018 and almost 7000 seed bombs, same number of seeds and seed pods were dispersed with the aim to contribute to our vanishing green cover in the Aravalis.

Many other initiatives like making seed embedded tricolour wrist bands and flags, Lakshmi Ganeshas, Christmas Decorations and Easter Seed Bombs were introduced by Alka Saran. She has also been conducting workshops on seed bombs in The Shri Ram Schools, Corporate Offices, Public Parks, Raahgiri etc.

Alka Saran further plans to work in a systematic manner for the Environment through her newly formed EARTH SUPPORTERS TRUST. She hopes to engage with as many young students as possible and form an Eco-Club. She also wants to work towards bringing about a ban on the small plastic National flags sold at traffic signals every Republic and Independence Day, to mobilize Gurugrammers to adopt eco-friendly seed embedded gift items and idols. She hopes to motivate citizens to minimize consumption behavior and inculcate the habit of Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Repair & Recycle.

For this monsoon season of 2019 Earth Supporters aspires to disperse 1 Lakh Seed Bombs in the outskirts of Gurugram. This is a labor-intensive work. The aim is to have an aerial dispersal of these seed bombs around appx. 100 odd water bodies in the Aravalis.

It is not possible to carry these seed bombs manually inside the forest so we require Helicopter or a Cessna-type aircraft for their quick dispersal. This will help us take full advantage of the valuable monsoon splash.
We would like to reach out to our family and friends, to all the passionate greeners and to everyone who cares for their own survival.
We need your support to make this dream Project 1 Lakh Seed Bombs happen.
